Another municipality is supporting our local MPP’s movement to end human trafficking.

Oakville council is in support of Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock MPP Laurie Scott’s bill.

Scott wants to introduce a multi-jurisdictional police task force meant to stop human trafficking.

Mayor of Oakville Rob Burton says this crime requires cooperation and coordination between law enforcement, victims’ services, frontline agencies, and more.

Burton says he hopes other community leaders across Ontario will support this.

Oakville councillor Marc Grant says he has seen a couple of instances where this crime has been active within Oakville.
